A recently discovered natural phenomenon known as 'sprites' have been observed as flashing lights that appear in the atmosphere above thunderstorms and could account for some UFO sightings, scientists at Tel Aviv University have claimed. 'Sprites' occur high up between 35 to 80 miles from the ground and were only discovered in 1989.
In legend, sprites are trolls, elves and other spirits that dance high above our ozone layer. But scientists at Tel Aviv University have discovered that some very real "sprites" are zipping across the atmosphere as well, providing a possible explanation for those other legendary denizens of the skies, UFOs."
